From Pertti EA7GSU
I have got something done for the antenna and it would do the job if there were not a national contest going and a “kW” station had decided to park his stn on 7105. But I heard Bill with 57 and Doug the same. And to my pleasure I also heard Peter, -KCD. I did not even try to get through the QRM although Bill gave 549 to my CW.

Funny prop˙s again. I got Bill and also Doug with good readibility but weak signals.
From EU there were G0EGW, G4HCK which I heard quite weak and understood that F1CFA and YO9BC also were qrv but I had no reception. I understand there were discussion of change of time of the schedule?
